The spectrum repack will be coming to your television soon! What is a repack? Local TV stations across the country will be changing their over-the-air broadcast frequencies on September 6th. Don't worry, it's not a HUGE change but there are steps you need to take in preparation. This is only needed for those who use an antenna to receive local channels. Service providers will do it for cable and satellite TV subscribers.

If you receive digital TV over-the-air with an antenna, you should periodically rescan to update the channels you receive. While some boxes do this automatically, you may need to select "scan" or "auto-tune" from the TV or converter box control menu to start the scanning process. You can usually find instructions to do so by pressing the "set-up" or "menu" buttons on your remote control.

If you have difficulty, consult the owner's manual for more detailed instructions on how to run a channel scan, or contact customer service for your TV or converter box manufacturer. You may find contact information in your instruction manual or on the internet.
